Review of Solvit Deluxe Telescopic Dog Ramp

This is a review of the Solvit Deluxe Telescopic Dog Ramp.


The Solvit telescopic dog ramp is strong yet lightweight only weighing 5.8kg. It is very easy to transport due to its lightweight and manageable size because the telescopic design means it closes in on itself and slides to a smaller size. There is a strong carry handle to hold while transporting in and out of your vehicle.  The ramp measures 182 x 42 x 9 cm when fully extended. So it isn’t the biggest but just slightly smaller than the largest we have reviewed. When packed away is just 99cm in length.

To use and unfold out simply unclip on the underneath and then pull out the base of the ramp to extend it out. There is an angled top to the ramp which should fit into the base ridge of the boot of your car. What is fantastic about this ramp is that it can be extended or shortened to fit small car sizes to van and SUV boot heights. Compared to a folding dog car ramp it can be pulled out to 1m in length, left at its smallest size when slid together or extended out to its largest size, it’s up to you and what length you want. With the folding options you can only have it folded up or fully extended.

It is a durable well made ramp with high side barriers to protect your dog as they walk. This is especially good for dogs who may have eye sight problems or visual problems. The rails will make sure they dont fall off as they walk up as their paws will be guided forward, up or down.The surface of the ramp is a sandpaper texture, a grippy tape, to aid with mobility of your dog as they use the ramp. If they have wet paws they definitely won’t slip on this ramp! In comparison to the Pet Gear Tri Fold Ramp as the weight of this product is half the weight you should find no problem in it brushing against your skin and damaging your clothes.

This ramp also really helps for owners who have mobility issues or back trouble so they do not need to lift their dog in and out of the car (whatever age or size their dog is) due to being light and easy to use.
